The Charm (2006)

EW's GRADE
B-

Details Release Date: Apr 04, 2006; Lead Performance: Bubba Sparxxx; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

One-third amazing, one-third good, and one-third awful, Bubba Sparxxx's third CD, The Charm, is a frustrating missed opportunity. The white rapper is insanely talented — his drawling flow stays loose and casual even as he's spitting taut verses. And when content and groove dovetail on the blue-collar lament ''Ain't Life Grand,'' he's an A-grade artist. But tired crunk tracks like ''Ms. New Booty'' keep the self-proclaimed country boy from getting his blue ribbon.
